Does anyone know if the phone number smart tag can recognize the contact name

if the phone number exists in the email? I get emails with phone numbers but

no contact information. It would be great if I can see the contact name.

Not with the standard telephone number smart tag, no. It will recognize the

number from your address list but unless you write your own smart tag

recognizer it won't associate the number with the contact information.

I'm not sure if it's possible to do that in a custom smart tag, but the

standard one definitely won't do it.

Beats me, I've never tried to develop a smart tag and have very little

knowledge about development of them and what's possible with them.

There is information about this at www.outlookcode.com, search there for

"smart tag" to see what's there.
